  How we can stop the war: 
  Lessons from Vietnam
  The US government’s murderous war in Iraq has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and more than 3,100 US soldiers.  The war has cost more than one trillion dollars, driven two million Iraqis into exile, and created civil-war conditions across much of Iraq.  
  The November elections demonstrated the breadth of antiwar sentiment in the United States today.  With voters furious with the Bush administration over the war, Democrats took both houses of Congress promising to oppose Bush’s policies in Iraq.  Yet Democratic leaders have refused to cut off funding for the war, or even withdraw the original mandate they gave Bush in 2002. 
  But if the Democrats won’t end the war, who will?  Come learn the lessons from the Vietnam War: when the world’s mightiest war machine was brought to its knees by the resistance movement in Vietnam, a mass antiwar movement in the US, and the opposition of active duty soldiers and GIs to the continuation of the war effort.  And come discuss how we might be able to apply those lessons to the antiwar movement today.
